As always, there is great coverage of struggles in this issue. Also the article on race, sex and class, while we wouldn't use some of the same language today, actually I think is really good overall, and way ahead of many class reductionist and workerist lefties even today, over half a century later

Although I have long been an anarcho-syndcalist, the various Solidarity stuff (mostly pre-Solidarity / Social Revolution merge) has been very influential. Glad to see this one up.
